    I am under the assumption these three turkeys are hens. On a facebook group though, at least one person was skeptical they were female.

    To me, they look female. They have tiny snoods, do not strut, and only make the 'yelp' noise. Perhaps the eyes here are better than mine. What does everyone think?
